What's the rarest record, CD or tape you own /mu/? Either by value or by how many exist.
my band's cassette, pressing of 25
rly though i'm not sure what the most limited thing i have is. the Live & Acoustic Mac Demarco tape is somewhat not everywhere so maybe that, or the QOTSA s/t cassette
What albums feel like winter? Is winter always bleak? Are there any falling in love during winter type albums?
You could argue pick related is autumn, but it's the best I got.
I've always considered White Winter Humnal to be evocative of winter, and subsequently Ragged Wood has always reminded me of the feeling of the beginning of spring, especially with the lyric:
"The world is alive now, in and outside now"
>Their best song is on their worst album
>artist has dozens of albums
>only one song on each album is decent
>artist has only one decent song
>every album has this same song, live versions of this song and some remixes thrown in
It's Yellow Magic Orchestra.
ITT: Music genres and their food / drink match
Those really stereotypical "gourmet" meals you see in movies. Even though you've never met anyone IRL who enjoys them, they obviously have a market somewhere because they keep getting made.
Let's remake the vaporwave sub-genre guide, community approved. Here are my six suggested sub-genres with a few relevant examples, based on SOUND and not aesthetic like the last two guides have been.
I think you can narrow vaporwave down to these 6 sub-genres. Six still sounds like quite a lot but vapor really is and always has been a diverse style
3. Ambient-based (hypnagogic drift and futurevisions in the new guide)
4. Transmission-based (broken transmission, tvcore, vapornosie)
5. VHS Pop (vhs pop, future funk, late night lo-fi)
Eccojams - Eccojams, Macintosh Plus
Midijams - Far Side Virtual, ClearSkies/Home
Ambient-based - Amun Dragoon, golden living room
Transmission - Nmesh, Speed-racer
VHS Pop - luxury elite, saint pepsi
Vaportrap - Blank Banshee, vaperror
We could try and come up with ten for each category and I will make a guide based on the selections.
First off before we decide on which albums go in which categories, are these sub-genres suitable? Am I missing any?
not really into that, but courious about general thoughts
Old one has almost hit the bump limit.

What does /mu/ think of the Voyager Golden Record?
I just moved to China. Looking for some Chinese bands to listen to. I like post-rock, ambient, and mathy instrumental type stuff, but I'll listen to anything you rec if you think it's worth giving it a listen. Also, I'm near Beijing, so good places/bands to see near there would also be appreciated.
Everyday I'm writing and working on music. Wondering how the fuck I get more people to come to shows, how to improve my sound new people to work with. I study music and sound and it kind of punches me in the gut every time I realise. You see thousands of lame youtube commenters asking you to check out their music, the daily sc threads on here and the millions of gigs and millions of bands happening a day in my country alone. I'm not saying I want to be famous but its crazy how many people are out there making music, how much effort people can put in for a relatively...

Step 1: Make amazing music that lots of people like
That's all there is to that, if you are good enough you will always be recognised as important to the people who's opinion you should care about.
ask yourself whether YOU would want to listen to your music. what do you look for in music, what makes you enjoy a piece, what's something that you would want to try? pick a country at random and explore their folk music, listen to a genre you swore never to listen to.
If you learn to love your music then you will at least have fun and satisfaction in making music, and that's the most important.
I know your feel, anon, I have it too, but don't give up!
>tfw someone asks you about music and you realise you don't actually know anything about it
I struggle to talk about anything I know about, even myself.
>so anon what about yourself
>uh, I went to school as a kid... and... I like video games....
I usually try to bail out of these personal conversations by being self-deprecating
>haha I don't know anything!
>I'm not interesting
